In this video tutorial, I show you how to:
- Create and update a copyright and contact information “metadata preset”
- Apply your preset to photos as you import them
- View copyright and contact information for your photos using the Metadata panel in the Library module
- Apply your preset to any selected photos in the Library module.
Note that this copyright and contact information tags along with your photos in the file properties data — it is not written across your photos. To write information onto your photos themselves, use the Watermarking functionality in the Export dialog.
For those of you who prefer written instructions rather than watching a video, here’s an article from a couple years ago explaining how to create and apply a copyright metadata preset.
Once you export a copy of your photo, here’s how you can verify that the copyright information is there: on a PC in Windows Explorer / My Computer right-click on the photo and choose Properties. You’ll find the information on the Details tab. On a Mac, in Finder right-click on your photo and choose Get Info.
